Gifts from Ecuador

Gracias papi y mami! (Thanks Mom and Dad!)

My sister just graduated from the University to Notre Dame! So my parents came from Ecuador and stayed a couple of days in New York City before we all headed to Notre Dame. They brought me Ecuadorian coffee and papaya and passionfruit jam. Both are absolutely delicious!!!

One of the things I miss the most about Ecuador is the amount, variety and affordability of fruits we have, this jam is a perfect reminder of home.

And the graduation was great. I got to see President Obama live! I wont forget that any time soon.


  1. Glad to hear you got to hang out with your folks!

    And was President handsome in person!? ;-)

  2. Thanks! Its always nice to see family!!! The president was very handsome and very inspirational. He is the ptype of person that makes you want to leave the room and be better at anything you do!
